Fantastic location, hotel and castle steeped in history from the 10th century through to tutor times with Henry the eight and Anne Boleyn. Just a romantic historic place to stay with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, great food and ambience. I highly recommend a visit and stay here. Also had a tour of the castle and visited the grounds and...

We stayed here for one night to celebrate my partner's birthday, and from start to finish this was a perfect stay. The castle is very impressive and seems to have many original features. The bed chamber was just as impressive. The room we were given was accessed via a small stone staircase and an imposing wooden gate like door. The...

My little family of three, which includes myself, my husband and my son stayed at the Thornbury castle yesterday in the Duke of Chambers. The room was very spacious and well appointed. We appreciated the craftsmanship and original work with the modern restroom facility. The personnel at the reception was very friendly and even agreed to show us a few...

It was a surprise birthday treat from my wife, and we loved the tower room. The Castle is a brilliant venue with lovely atmosphere and beautiful ambience. Our dinner, however, was a great disappointment. I decided to have the (very expensive) sirloin steak, and my wife had a cheese burger. Unfortunately, I like salt on my chips, and was amazed...

Went with mum as a birthday treat. We received a warm welcome and were allocated two lovely seats by the window in the library room. The staff were attentive and polite and ensured that our requirements were met. Plenty of tea was served. The cakes were gorgeous and the scones were crisp on the outside. It was a lovely experience....

As a castle stay, this bedchamber experience was more authentic, but as every nook & cranny of this place has been coverted into a guest bedroom, I can't say if everyone got the same experience; and there is not much to explore about the castle due to the amount hat has been converted to rooms. Anyway, that said, I very...

I booked a night at Thornbury Castle as a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday. I booked through the hotel using one of their mid week stay packages which included our evening meal and a breakfast (both of which were delicious!)
